Technology is an integral and exciting part of the school curriculum. At Holy Name Primary School we strive to integrate this throughout all aspects of the curriculum. The use of iMAC computers, iPads and various robotics technologies are some examples of how we aim to encourage students to become effective producers, consumers and communicators of information. The school also has a weekly lunch time ‘Coding Club’ which is facilitated by teachers and provides students with the opportunity to experiment, collaborate and problem solve through the use of Bloxels EDU and Sphero Edu programs.
All students, across all year levels, have the opportunity to use technology in the class room on a daily basis using Google apps for Education, as well as other online educational programs.
* Year 2: Chrome books
* Years 3 – 6: ipad program
Prior to using any form of technology, students and their parents are required to sign an Internet Usage Agreement which outlines the school’s expectations of students whilst accessing the internet.
